Folkestone 10: Race Report


As the 15th Harrier home. I take the baton for writing the race report. On a sunny Good Friday morning 26 Harriers made a trip to Hythe/Folkestone to run 10miles as part of the KGP. This was the second event in the series. Known for PB potential being an out and back flat course. With a slight incline about halfway up through a park and then back again. With the reported temperatures of 13-16 degrees the start felt warm. I was glad for my baseball cap! The way out with sun pounding down definitely felt hot. Way back the sun at my back and slight breeze definitely felt nicer! And there were some good racing and PBS

Thanks to our great supporters Sam, Bob and Rosie.

Big shout out to Geoff who ran in Brighton last weekend and to Sonja who was using it as a long training run for her Weald challenge.
The Cadbury cream egg at the end was a definite highlight yum 😋 
Sorry almost forgot to shout to Ed who rode to Folkestone (50 odd miles) to support us and take photos.  Thanks Ed!
